Poetry Corner – What the World Really Truly Needs

Nov 15, 2022 | Poetry Corner

The world seems
to be
a rolling hill of embers
on the verge
of spontaneous combustion, 

but that’s not what
the world needs,
what the world needs is
to sit down and
share a cup of chamomile tea
with its neighbor,
to enjoy a prickly pear
with its aunt, 

it needs to serenely
watch a hermit crab
scuttle across the beach,
or sit blissfully in a
field of jasmine
daydreaming the day away, 

what the world really truly needs
is an olive branch.
